[I am now part of the Team bspies! Visit them!]

Brave Sydney Marie Dudley [Post #10 1:30 PM]

Sydney was born at 28 weeks weighing 2lbs 14ozs so she was born to fight. She got diagnosed on august 27 2004 with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. She had six rounds of high dose chemo, 11-hour surgery to remove primary tumor, stem cell transplant, radiation and six months of Accutane.

Sydney will be six in November and is getting ready to start kindergarten. She has lost her high frequency hearing due to high dose chemo but doesn't seem to let that stop her.

The Dudleys

Nikki’s Notes: Sydney’s mom told me: “You couldn't have picked a better inspiration than Christ Thomas. Although I have never met them in person, their story reaches far and wide and they continue to teach us all how to keep up the fight!” I wanted to pass that on to the Thomas Team as they celebrate each day with Christi!

To sum up Sydney right now, I’d like to quote her mother’s latest journal entry dated July 28th. “Went to clinic today and Syd has once again beaten back the beast!!!!! Clean Scans!!!!!!! Everything is fantastic with her. She is up to right under 44 pounds!!!!! She had lost down to 35 at transplant.... She is just really doing soo well.... I am more blessed than I can ever say...”
